UK Prime Minister Election 2022: Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss are in a close fight for the Prime Minister’s item in Britain, while Sunak himself has now admitted that he is a little behind in the fight. Rishi Sunak, while playing an important stake in the UK Prime Minister’s election, said that he is weak in the race to become the next Conservative Party leader and Prime Minister of Britain, but he will continue his fight for every vote.

At the same time, now their tone is seen with a change regarding tax deduction.
Truss made this promise
On the other hand, her rival and foreign secretary Liz Truss said during this time that she would abolish the tax as soon as she took office.

The pair battled to garner the votes of some 175,000 party members ahead of the announcement of the election results on 5 September. Sunak said that I am seeking the support of all of you. I promise you that I am going to fight for every single vote. He warned that he is not responsible for not deducting tax and neither is he a conservative.
